Catching Up

I know it’s been over a month since I last wrote anything, I just needed to take a step away from everything. It was worth it.

Biopsy Results

In January I got my biopsy results back. After a two week wait, which seemed like it was two months.

My results (on a number scale) is a 2. Which means they found minor changes, but it’s nothing to worry about. It’s not cancer or anything – hopefully it will never be. In the end I have to have my pap every year. So I go back next January – unless something happens before that appointment and I need to see my doctor. It’s something they have to keep an eye on, but my doctor seems to think it won’t go beyond what it is now.

I will at least have to call my doctor before that time though because my birth control will run out before that time. So it’s nothing major, just a phone call for them to call in another year.

Work

I’ve been working, pretty much as often as they’ll let me right now since it is slow. Which means 4 days a week. I did go in early a couple days because they had someone call off. During the week I still start work around 11am and work through lunch and some of dinner. Right now those shifts during the week are 8 hours.

On the weekend they’re starting my shift earlier, at 9am. They’re trying to get me used to breakfast. I don’t know anything about breakfast because I never worked it. They haven’t put me in the kitchen to train me on making anything, but I have a feeling they will soon. My weekend shifts are short though, even though they start at 9.

When it comes to the manager training, we’re making small steps toward getting it over with. I have around four hours left of videos/tests I have to finish before anything else. They’re all easy and such, it’s just finding the time to do them. You have to do them while on the clock. I’m going to ask tomorrow if I can work on some of them, hopefully I can.

The next step is going through team leader classes. Which in the end will just be computer based things I’ll have to do.

For a while I wasn’t excited about this step up. I felt like they were just worried about a coworker stepping up and they were showing her everything. I talked to one of the managers about it and told them it didn’t seem like they were wanting me to move up and if they weren’t going to seriously work with me I was going to find another job where they would. I think that talk must have worked because it just seems to be moving forward.

I’m already sure I’ll be the hated manager too. Which in the end, I don’t care. I just get tried of seeing the same people get away with stuff. Also, people not wearing their uniform as they should.

Kentucky Trip

The major things that needed done for the trip are finished! I’m super grateful to have them done though because it was kind of stressing me out.

I ordered the tickets for Waverly Hills Sanatorium early this month. I ordered them when they were waving extra fees too. So for the 4 tickets I ordered it was only $100 and my brother already paid me back for the 2 I ordered for them. I took the time last night to print them out, I found a folder to put the tickets in so they don’t get messed up.

When I printed the tickets they printed with a list of things we can’t bring to the tour. Pretty much you’re allowed to have a small flashlight and a camera. Which is all I need. haha.

Last night I also booked the hotel room. We’re just getting one double room. When I split the total cost in half it was around $94 for each couple. I had found a cheaper hotel, but my boyfriend and I were looking for something closer to downtown so we could maybe go into downtown Friday night after the tour and we were planning on going around the city Saturday. Well the hotel I booked is only 2 miles from downtown.

Today I’m going to sit and write down addresses for the GPS. Mainly I’m wanting to make sure I have the address for the hotel and the sanatorium wrote down and in the folder.

I do have a couple places I want to eat, so I’m going to be writing down those addresses too.

Glasses

Retro Dress, Wide Red Belt
I finally got my glasses! It took almost a month though. The original ones I ordered they didn’t sell anymore. So in the end I was able to get these slight cat eye glasses. They look black, but they’re actually blue. I found a few places online to order glasses, so after I get a few things done I’m going to be ordering some glasses.

After a week of wearing them my eyes got used to seeing what I’m suppose to. I was seeing double due to my right eye, now I see single! Haha. I honestly can’t explain how great it is to be able to see. I used to write a lot and well, I just stopped doing it because it wasn’t fun due to my eyes. I have started writing another story though, and it feels awesome!

One downside of glasses is the fact that I have to get used to using my camera again. Haha. In the end though since I only use one eye to take a picture, I can pretty much use my camera without my glasses.

Jewelry

I’ve never really been one to wear rings, mostly for the fact that the rings I like don’t come in my size (3 1/2 to 4). Thanks to eBay though I’ve been able to find rings I like and that I can wear.

Crown Rings

I ordered my niece one of these crown rings, and I ended up ordering myself one too. The one I ordered her is a size 3 and to my surprise it fits. Mine is a size 4.

Ring

I also ordered myself this ring. I fell in love with it when I found it and it’s a size 4. I just couldn’t walk away from it.

Mother/Daughter Necklace

One day while I was looking around eBay at random I came across this necklace. I ordered it for my mom & I. I have zero complaints about it at all.

Weather

For the most part this has been a warm winter. We’ve had days where it’s nearly 70, this isn’t normal. One day at work I looked at a coworker and said it feels like April, she agreed with me. There has been days – in February – where it’s so warm outside that in the kitchen at work it has been pushing 90 degrees.

On January 12th we finally have a nice snowfall. Lucky me, I had the day off so I didn’t have to worry about needed to go out in it. I did go out to take pictures though. ^_^

The first day of February it was nice out, which was just weird.

On February 8th I was at my boyfriend’s house. The snow turned into a rain/snow mix by around noon that day though.

On the 16th we got a nice snow. It was that heavy wet snow. I was sleeping and hear something hit the roof. it honestly sounded like a tree, but it was just snow.

The end of last week it was so warm and nice, but this week there’s another chance of snow and the highs are going to be barely in the 40s. Can we just skip to summer?

Furbabies

Ash

Tomorrow Ash will be 6 months old! He really has his lion look going one now, as any Maine Coon does. He lost his collar for a month and without his collar you could really see how much the fur around his neck as grown.

And as any other Maine Coon, Ash loves the snow. I was out taking pictures of the snow and he found me and tried to get me to play with him in the snow. He was loving it so much.

Carrie

Carrie on the other hand is around 3 months old. I rescued her when she was only 5 weeks old.

Desk Friends

Most people keep little things on their desk. My odd collection of things I keep on my desk keeps growing.

Dr. Frank N. Furter, Dean Winchester, Chucky & Dean Winchester

The newest member of my desk friends is Chucky! I was looking for Jason, but they didn’t have any. So, I’m still looking for Jason.

  1. I have been wondering what was your result, and yes, I have been thinking about you since you last posted. I am glad that you are fine! Speaking of paps, I need to get one done soon myself. I’m not at all worried, though, I really should be more on top with my health. I’ve been slacking with not having vegetables as much as I used too, and it’s showing. Thanks to school and not wanting to cook because of some people. I just really need to start eating healthier like I was before starting school.

    Your fur-babies are so adorable!! My cat Misty is 14 years old now! She really doesn’t look her age and doesn’t act like it either. In fact, she acts more like a kitten. I honestly have never seen her have so much energy!

  2. Glad you updated! I’ve missed you so much! Thank you so much for being a great friend to me. I hope whatever any problems you have now or in the future do not linger and hurt you for any short of time.
